Whenever I read a really good memoir, I always have a moment I pause and think, “Wow, this person [did this thing], AND they are a great writer!” And then I realize chances are they probably got help with the writing part. Nevertheless, this is a really good memoir. Well-written, light-hearted, and fascinating. Definitely a GUY book written by a “guy’s guy” with a GUY point of view, but we are each entitled to our voice.
